Coronavirus Update

Liberate Your Audiobook and E-book Libraries with and Hummingbird! 

Don't Forget Your Student Discount! 

*Coronavirus Update: Lockdown Edition*

We know the world is over-saturated with COVID-19 news, but we wanted to give you an update on what we here at the store are doing to comply with Colorado's Stay-at-Home Order. 

Luckily we are still able to go to the store for "essential operations," so we've had to adjust some things, but we won't be shuttering completely.
The major points include:

--only ONE person in the store at a time (to maintain ultimate social distance);
--**still answering phones from 10am to 2pm**
--***SHIPPING ONLY; No more curbside pick up, no more home delivery. We were mitigating shipping costs with deliveries, which we can't do anymore, so unfortunately, we have to put a small shipping fee back on small orders. ORDERS OF $20 OR MORE WILL STILL GET FREE SHIPPING!!***
--Since there's only one person answering the phone, we beg your patience if you can't get through. Talk to us here on Facebook, over on Twitter, or shoot us an email asking for book recommendations; we know it's not the same as chatting with us, but it will help us streamline and get books and recs to you faster!

For more details on this, here's the full blog post. 

Don't forget to sign up for our newsletter and follow us on social media (You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram)! Any updates and news will go in the newsletter and on these platforms first, so if you follow us, you'll be the first to know about rescheduled events, returns to normal hours, and any other updates as we work through this crisis.

Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support! 

Liberate Your Audiobook and E-book Libraries with and Hummingbird! 

We know you're busy, and you don't always have time to sit down and read a book. And space is limited, so paper-and-ink copies aren't always practical when you can squish a whole library onto your e-reader. Luckily, we've got you covered on both fronts! is your one-stop shop for audiobooks. You pick the duration of your subscription--one month, three months, six months, or the whole year--and you get access to over 100,000 audiobooks on any of your devices at any time you want. You get one audiobook a month for your subscription, and you can purchase even more audiobooks for 30% off! You can sign up through to support them and us and make your road trip or your daily run  just a little more literary! 

Hummingbird is the place to go for e-books! Hit up our storefront at to browse thousands of quality e-books from today's bestsellers to your kid's new favorite picture book, from this month's mystery book club pick to the romance you've been craving to the history book you want to learn from. They've got everything you could imagine available to download to all your favorite devices. Their Frequently Asked Questions page will even tell you how to get the app on your Kindle Fire or Nook! 

Since we're partnered with and with Hummingbird, every audiobook you subscribe for or e-book you buy through our storefronts on their websites helps us. So you're not only supporting fantastic digital book services, you're supporting your favorite indie, too! It's a win-win-win for them, us, and you! 

Don't Forget Your Student Discount! 

A lot of you have taken advantage of this, but we want to remind all college students (and faculty!)--at CSU and FRCC--that if you show us your valid student (or faculty!) ID, you'll get 15% off each item you purchase from us! You must show us your ID at the beginning of your transaction at the register for the discount to be applied. This discount does not stack with other discounts, but we'll always give you the better of the discounts!
